London Crystal Palace Fire

The Crystal Palace, famous London exhibition and amusement centre, was completely destroyed by fire. The vast building, constructed entirely of glass and wood, situated 550 feet above sea level on Sydenham Hill, was a blazing beacon that could be seen more than fifty miles around. The explosions as fireworks blew up, and the crash of glass as sections collapsed was heard at great distance. The blaze was the most spectacular seen in modern times. A general view of the fire at its height showing one of the imposing towers threatened by the blaze, on Nov. 30, 1936. The other tower collapsed. (AP Photo)
